Jonathan, I got to see all four hummingbird species (Purple-throated Carib, Green-throated Carib, Blue-headed Hummingbird, and Antillean Crested Hummingbird) on the island of Dominica in the Caribbean - I'm slowly putting up pics of them!

Super, so glad you get to see hummingbirds, which ones?

Aaah...hummingbirds. I saw my very first hummingbirds on my recent holiday and they are sooo hard to photograph. Amazing pics Jonathan. Caught the detail and colours stunningly well! Thank you for sharing :)

I will do that.
